ROSWELL DAY OF HOPE

September 24, 2022

Hope Roswell is hosting the 13th annual Roswell Day of Hope (RDOH) on Saturday, Sept 24th at Roswell City Hall. 12-4pm. We hope you will join us. Bring your family and friends to enjoy a day filled with hope. There will be something of interest to everyone!

If you are in need of shoes, medical or dental assistance or you’d like a nice new haircut, you’ll find it at the event. If you don’t need that assistance but you’re wanting to enjoy the outdoors, you’ll be able to sample local coffee flavors while strolling through the Art section. Local artists and students will have their artwork on display, and you can join in on the silent auction and take one home! (All proceeds benefit Hope Roswell) Of course there will be ‘live’ music, food trucks and games for the family.

What is the 2022 RDOH about?

God called us to love our neighbors and to serve one another. We’ve partnered with Roswell’s local non-profits and businesses to bring you a truly one of a kind event. This years focus is on our teens and you will hear the question being asked…

“Are your kids ok?”

At first glance, you would say Yes, my kids are OK.  But the short answer is NO. Since the end of the covid lockdowns, the number of kids and teens who are struggling with anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts has exploded. At the RDOH, you’ll have a chance to learn about struggles that our teenagers face on a daily basis, but more importantly, what signs to look for and what to do next.

Have you ever said “My kid would NEVER do that!”

Many parents in the Roswell area have made that statement only to wake up and find their teen has made a really bad choice. The growing number of victims in our area is staggering. The biggest contributor to these atrocities is social media. Do you know what to look for on your family’s social media accounts when identifying issues? Without your knowledge, your teens can begin to feel bad about themselves due to bullying, harassment or embarrassment on social media.
